view while driving to Pataan Falls…

I’ve had my stint in Bacolod for work and I definitely explored the place and places around it. One of favorite place to visit is Pataan Mountain Resort.

Pataan Mountain Resort is located in Sitio Pataan, Bago City. There are several ways to get to this place via public or private transportation. I have always visited the place using private transportation since it’s hard to get a ride going up the resort. Going to the town where it is situated is easy but the climb to PNOC road is a bit of a hassle.

  • via Murcia ,before Mambukal –  turn right to  Sitio Manghumay – turn left as soon as you reach the end of the road (you should be in Bago City by this time and have experienced several slopes on your way ) – follow the road to PNOC
  • via Bago City, from Bacolod  – head South until you reach Bago City – turn left to Crossing Mining – head to Ma-ao Public Market – go straight until y0u reach Kipot Falls (you should pass by Buenos Aires Mountain Resort Signage) – turn right and follow the road to PNOC
  • via Murcia, before turning left leading to Murcia Public Market – go straight until you reach Bago City – turn left (intersection with Bago City Outpost), this is the road from Cr0ssing Mining –  head to Ma-ao Public Market – go straight until y0u reach Kipot Falls (you should pass by Buenos Aires Mountain Resort Signage) – turn right and follow the road to PNOC

on our way up…

The first time I went to Pataan, I had to ask my sister for a landmark. I remember her  telling me that we need to take the right turn after Kipot Falls and it’s going to be a tough ride since it is a rough road. We did what she told us to do and have made a joke out of it.  — “rough road? no way it’s no road!”.

see what happens? this is the reason why we left Angel in Bacolod 🙂

From that time on, I can stay that the road and the resort have definitely improved. From few cottages to overnight cabins, Pataan is getting ready for more tourists to visit the place.

Pataan Mountain Resort has pool too…

Aside from the picturesque view in and from the resort, adventurous visitors would not pass on checking out the falls itself.  Compared to Mambukal, the hike to the falls in Pataans is easier. It is just one unlike the seven falls hike offered by Mambukal. The pathway is already developed too. Swimming is not very well enjoyed in the falls area but be ready to be wet because of water splash. Back massage is also one option you can enjoy 🙂 Don’t panic, there is a swimming pool inside the resort.

For family outings and team buildings, you can bring you food inside cooked or you can cook it yourself. Paluto is also available, either you bring the ingredients or ask for their menu.

I really love the water in the resort, being cold an fresh, it always help me to relieve stress from work. Considering that the people I go with are also my workmates, the place is so peaceful that it helped me forget all my work problems.

the cast

unforgettable people 🙂

Heads up, there is corkage for drinks 😀
